Hosts Greg Crumpton and Tyler Kern are back for another episode of “Straight Outta Crumpton,” your source for insights on the relationships and people that drive the HVAC and mechanical industry and beyond.

On this episode, the duo is joined by gardin, LLC. founder and CEO Adi Avin. Avin’s gardin is an interior plant design studio in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Crumpton and Avin said their relationship is founded on a share love for simply talking business. The foundation of many a good relationship is having something in common, and business relationships are no different – it doesn’t take a specific interest or hobby to find common ground, either.

“If we’d see each other out (during the pair’s time in the ballroom dance industry), we’d both just kind of move to the side and talk business,” Avin said. “It’s much more interesting and fun, and I’ve always just loved bouncing ideas off Greg. He’s got so much to contribute. I would say he’s really been like a mentor to me.”

“Scar tissue’s hard to beat,” Crumpton said.

Throughout this episode, Crumpton and Avin offer insights from each of their perspectives on business relationships, give and take, spreading awareness of others’ journeys and businesses, and the value of paying it forward.

“The amazing thing is that Greg has put the word out on my business, and he’s completely selfless,” Avin said. “He wanted nothing in return.”
